Happy Clients

  • Like a lot of SFNewsletter readers, I figured Alex would be either too busy or simply uninterested in representing a first time buyer with a sub-seven figure budget. Ten months of searching and four offers later, we’re homeowners, and he’s still returning my calls…The cool thing about Alex is he’s new-school enough to embrace technology’s influence over his profession, but old-school enough to hold your sweaty hand through every step of escrow. Bottom line, if you’re looking to be escorted from property to property in your agent’s Mercedes while being lavishly praised for your exquisite taste and style, Alex ain’t your guy. But if you’re looking for consummate San Francisco market expertise, every tool you’ll ever need to find and evaluate your properties, and a Tiger Woods-like closing mentality – hell, you’re already reading his newsletter, posting to his blog, and god forbid you’re receiving his twitter banter – seriously, why use anyone else?!

  • As a first time homebuyer, I was very nervous and had questions about everything (pricing, inspections, closing process, etc) but Alex was professional, considerate, supportive, and he promptly responded to all my questions and guided me throughout the entire process. I've worked with a few other real estate agents and I picked Alex because of his speed (and pretty much 24/7 service), attention to details (he reads everything), and most importantly, he is a great negotiator and would fight to get what's best for me. A few other things about Alex that impressed me: He is well-connected in the industry so he is a great source of information. He understands quickly what I like. When the market is hot and every day matters (we're living in an era where someone can get in contract and close within a few days), it's really important to find an agent who understands the client and the market inside-out, so that you are presented with the right properties and not waste time. Alex would zoom in to do research, figure out how competitive each individual property is, and go over details and comps to make sure that I'm prepared with information I need to make a solid winning offer. I met Alex at an open house that he was hosting, there was a line just to talk to him. But he was patient and answered every single question from every person, and then it was my turn and we chatted. After that, it took a few emails and he got it. Recommended me exactly what I was looking for and helped me snatch it. I would recommend Alex without hesitation. In fact, he has already helped 3 of my friends to buy and sell houses (and a few more at the moment). Buying and selling properties is stressful, why not find an agent that you like to do it all for you whilst you go surfing, golfing, or sailing?

  • Alex was very easy to work with. He was straightforward, gave good advice about how the condominium should look when it was being shown, and managed the negotiations with the buyer perfectly. I always felt he was dealing with me honestly, and he kept me fully informed. I will go to Alex any time I want to sell a house in San Francisco.

  • Carole and I feel that we were very fortunate to have met you at the open house and I am glad we chose you to work with. Be assured in the future when we are ready to look at the market again we will be calling, as well as referring any house hunting friends to you.

  • After having mostly settled into our new home, it’s finally time write a few words about our realtor – Alex Clark. Whether you are looking to buy or sell (and we used Alex for both), Alex knows the San Francisco market and how to get a deal closed, regardless of how stiff the competition might seem. On the buy-side, Alex helped us get a true gem of single family home in the Inner Richmond by working patiently, but persuasively, with the Seller, who was hesitant to let go of the house after having it in the family for over forty years. But by making a personal connection with the Seller’s agent, and nudging us gently to get to where we needed to be to make a winning offer, we came out on top. And if you are familiar with how competitive the San Francisco real estate market can be and how quickly it’s moving, that’s no small achievement. On the sell-side, Alex’s knowledge of the neighborhood, comps, and how to market the property to generate packed open houses, helped us get the most for our condo. Bottom line – we crushed the closet comp listing by 20%, which we attribute directly to Alex’s understanding of the market. Alex worked tirelessly to help us make both our buying and selling goals a reality, and above it all, he’s a genuinely good guy and easy to get along with. Thanks Alex!
